When I log in to the Forum at home, using the L&G Firefox, I get a warning that the password field is not secure.

When I log in to the Forum at work, using the L&G Chrome, no warning.

Since the Unfortunate Events at Equifax, I've been a little more aware of security.

Has anyone else gotten a security warning with Firefox? What about with any other browser?

This forum use the http protocol so it is unsecure with all browsers. When you log in to any site using only http, your password will be send as plain text and anyone from the same network can see it with free utilities.
I hope that NewTek will add a certificate for the server of this forum to support the https protocol.

This should help.

It may not work on all sites.
